Dry Embossing time

Embossing would have to be one of my favourite techniques, it adds so much texture to your project and not to mention the sparkle and shine of embossing powders!

It's time to go to your dry embossing folders and techniques for this weeks Delicious Doodles challenge.   Here is my inspiration card, I've used 'Guarding the Nest' as dragons are one of my favourite mythical creatures.

Don't be fooled by her placid look, she's quite deadly especially if she's protecting her young, so don't get too close!
Here is the D&D description of a Blue Dragon!
The blue dragon is a vain and territorial juggernaut of claws, scales, and beating wings, with a powerful breath weapon of crackling lightning! 
 LOL oh that brings back some memories of fun adventures and loads of laughs with friends.  
I've used lots of spica pen on her scales and wings, let's face it, when you imagine a dragon, you imagine all that shimmer on their scales they appear to shift colours as the light hits them.  Oh sorry, I got a bit distracted there.

I've used Dazzling Details on the dragon eggs.  The sparkle and shine is gorgeous.  The embossing folders used here are a cuttlebug reptile skin on metallic paper as a border then a Spellbinders tree/leaves folder on the black.  I swiped a versamark inkpad across the raised parts and then dusted that with some mica powders.  So you see a sheen of blue.

Copics used here are
B0000, 02, 04, 21, 26, 29, Y26 & 28 and E40
Spica Baby Blue, Sky Blue, Gold, Silver and Clear.

I'd love to see your embossed creation over at Delicious Doodles this week!

Hope you like her and the little bit of fun in her description.

  4. Hi Kasey

    Catching up with you at last!!!

    Firstly what a great card. I love the colours, the sparkle and the gorgeous ribbon!! Your image is coloured just perfectly and what a fab background .. .. in short I love it all!!!

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my rustic wedding invitation. I agree with you on adding some distressing to the edges of it .. .. .. but with the potential to have to do close to 100 invites between the day and evening guests I try to restrict myself and not make them more time consuming than they already are.

    I hope all is good with you.

    Have a good weekend.

    Love Jules xx
